Stick it to me
As part of my - be healthy and happy in 2011 - promise to myself, I decided to start acupuncture. It is a strange thing to be stuck with needles and told it will make you feel better - and stranger still when I actually do feel better.
So far I have only gone for one session of becoming a human pincushion, and I was simply amazed by the level of emotions my mind and body circulated through in the course of that hour. I teared up, felt pure bliss, pure sadness and more bliss, and then relaxed into a sluggish, cathartic state where each creak of the building or laugh of a person walking by in the street, echoed in my ears like pots being clanged in a kitchen.
I have no idea if any of this will actually do anything to increase my fertility or fix my PCOS and hypothyroidism, but I sure as hell and willing to give it my best try (2x a week for 4 weeks - to start - and then a chance for re-evaluation). I will keep you all posted as to the results.
In other news, I'm so terribly excited about my first RE appointment on Thursday that I can hardly focus on anything else. I keep telling myself that this could be the big chance that finally gets us to baby. Maybe I'm putting too much faith in this one doctor, but I just can't help it. I need to feel excitement and hope and so I am, dammit!
